Relationship Advice from Dr. TRuth
Dear Dr. TRuth,
Hi. I am writing to you because there is something
weird happening, I know it's long but I need to know
First this is what happened:I was at
the auditorium at school for this presentation and
my teacher was sitting all the way in the back but
for some reason he moved closer to my class then he
was looking for someone in my class he stopped when
he saw me.
Later he was talking to these guys in my
class and while he was laughing he looked at me.
He did this a few times sometimes he looked other times
he just stared.
My question here is does he like
me? Or was he flirting?
Then the next day he came to
my science class and he would look at everything I do.
He got sort of excited when I was next to him cause
I was reading something next to him and he acted
Another thing that day was when some boys
were bothering me because of throwing papers around
the class and I wanted them to stop so I said "stop"
out loud and they wouldn't stop so I don't know if
it was a coincidence but he told everyone to stop
right after I said "stop" out loud.
The next day I had him for class and he told us to do journal.
Right after he explained it the 1st thing he did was sit
on a desk and look at me.(weird)
All I know is that
he looks stares and smiles at me. I think he likes me
or something. That's why i need your help on the
Does he like me? was he flirting? does he care about me? does he have a crush
on me? what should i do? also i don't do very well
in his class (he's my teacher)
ps please don't email
me with the reply my parents don't know and they
will get real mad.
Dear "Confused about a Teacher's Crush"
It's hard to say but from what you described, it does
sound as if he is attracted to you. But so what!
My advice is to steer clear of any personal involvement
with him because it won't lead to anything that is
good for you. When a teacher involves himself like
this, first, he is breaking a law and second, he is
violating the rights of a minor.
Bottom line is: you
Please just ignore whatever advances me
might make but continue to be pleasant, friendly and
nice within the boundaries of being his student.
I guess my real question to you is: why aren't you doing
well in school? Don't you think this is what you
should be concentrating on?
